I've unfriended aquaintenses and distant family on Facebook for doing this. I don't have any friends who have, the ones with older boys didn't and all my kid free or pregnant friends said they wouldn't.

If I took the time to educate someone about why RIC is wrong and they would still choose to do it I know I'd never be able to respect them. And doubt I'd be willing to continue a friendship.

That's just it; it's not a "personal decision" any more than FGM is. It's a violation of a kid's basic human rights, and someone who knows the facts and chooses to do it anyway has just demonstrated a major lack of character in my book.

Completely agree with this

So, what about all the religious people who are Intactivists? Ever seen www.beyondthebris.com? Think everyone is still doing it?http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSBRE8AR0M720121128?irpc=932 Do you know Miriam Pollack? How about Leonard Glick, MD or Paul Fleiss, MD?

It's only anti-semitism if a person only wants to do away with religous cutting. Otherwise, it's a red herring.

Cutting off healthy, functional body parts of another person is wrong no matter what your reason & no matter the sex of the person. Body mods are for adults to choose for themselves.

May you have girls.

All the best,
